Episode 38 will debut at 12:00pm on Wednesday, September 19th!!
I wanted to just give everyone an update about my health. I am not doing well, and am facing a list of chronic medical conditions. It’s difficult to balance the need to get information out on one hand and privacy on the other. I will keep up my effort to get better.
Season 2 (episodes 38-now): Brian Scherschel chronologically, critically and academically examines a Godzilla/kaiju/tokusatsu film in each episode. Brian relates the movies to pertinent issues about Japan. Kaijuvision Radio is dedicated to discovering the Japanese National Spirit in Toho tokusatsu films.
Season 1 (episodes 1-37): Brian and co-host Nathan Marchand take a fascinating journey reassessing the Godzilla franchise, and since these movies are often anchored in the time they were released, they tell you what these movies are communicating about Japan.
